How to talk with your children about Ebola
Corporate Authors:Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)
Description:With so much about Ebola in the news, chances are your children have heard about it. You can help your children understand what is happening here in the United States and in West Africa by talking with them directly. Not talking about Ebola can make it seem even scarier to a child. You can tailor these ideas for your child’s age, development, and concerns.
If children ask you a question that you don’t know how to answer, look to reliable sources of information, such as the CDC website, your pediatrician, or the health department. Older children may wish to look for the answers along with you. Let children know that the government , doctors, and health departments are taking steps to try to keep everyone well.
